Assume you're a member of a hospital IT incident response team. A recent ransomware attack against your hospital encrypted all the patient files located on the hospital servers and severely impacted the hospital’s ability to administer both inpatient and outpatient services. Hospital emergency services were also affected. You helped resolve the crisis and have been asked to share your analysis of the attack and present it to other hospitals in your state. Read 2 articles about protecting against ransomware attacks from the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) website. Review the risk management strategies you studied in Week 2. Analyze the ransomware attack based on the articles and their recommended protection strategies. Create an 9- to 10-slide PowerPoint® presentation (not including your references slide) that can be used to educate other hospitals in the area about the potential impact of such ransomware crimes. Complete the following in your presentation: Include your analysis of the attack on your hospital, summarizing the attack scenario. Address the assets attacked, the impact of the attack, the threats that were made to the assets, and vulnerabilities exploited by the cybercriminal. Describe how the use of recommended CERT security controls may have prevented or reduced the impact of the cyberattack, and how other hospitals can avoid such an attack. Format your assignment according to APA guidelines. Submit your assignment after thoroughly proofreading each slide.
